This is Bistek al la Mexicana a common dish found many places. There are several places I get this some better than others but all real decent! Kind of a tomato based sauce with generally pretty tender pieces of beef and a fair amount of it. The rice is pretty generic but the frijoles can be something else. This also includes as many fresh made in front of you tortillas you want and brought to you with a smile. Something like this costs around 50-60 pesos or $3. The squeezed as you watch orange juice is 20 and brings the price up a bit but worth it. Nothing in the States I've ever had compares to this not even close plus it'll cost 7-10 smacks. I don't know what I'm going to eat when I return. It will be an adjustment as I do this so much that is go into Puerto Vallarta on the south side and have me a excellent lunch with "real" Mexican food not the slop I get back there. I do not plan on eating out much at all only at maybe three select places. Pricey yes but worth it because it's so good. I threw away so much money last summer eating way overpriced shitty food. Several times the food got thrown away as well. The whole of Mexico is an eating machine I tell you. I'm gonna miss this.

I feel good and and think the higher temps and humidity contributes to that. It's the same every time. After a month or two you realize and say " Hey I feel pretty damn good!"

Just as important I believe the food made fresh with wholesome fresh ingredients as well contributes to that. Get off the bus in town the food smells everywhere make me hungry just like that.


Here's The Reward For Trying To Raise Awareness

On how children in this country are raised and in this case boys. I do not have a problem with this and this man and this ad bring up flaws in people and their child raising techniques.

Since people have been insulted or what have you the only recourse of course is to threaten this former Marine with his life. Yup that oughtta take care of that ya see.



  1. Dude, that is one crazy story. It's a great commercial and I'm going to repost it in Purgatory (I'll give you cred).

  2. I don't see a damn thing wrong with this ad. The response it has generated means it has hit a nerve and is telling a fundamental truth, at least that's what I think.

  3. What Liberality said!

    And you, of course.


  4. Thank you ladies!

    And FYI Dubuque,Cornfield where this story originates from and the surrounding cornfields cannot get any more catholic.

  5. Again the obligatory death threat. Will we ever get better?

  6. I just don't think so Mont. These people have been conditioned to act like this and they do thanks to the becks and limbo's.

  7. Beautiful flower Tom! I just saw a beautiful baby!

  8. Hi Jim-took that a couple days ago at work in the lounge where if the sun comes out the flowers bloom and things grow real well. You must mean da baby in the video.
